Tony Boot netted a hat-trick as the Rebels recorded their seventh
successive league win at the Metropolitan police's Imber Court
ground. Two second-half goals including a penalty added to the
opener Boot got midway through the first-half.
The Rebels were well up for it in the knowledge that a win could
get them promoted. However, it was a scrappy affair with not much good football
The only real goalscoring opportunity Slough created in the
first-half came on 22 minutes. Tony Boot (pictured left) fired in from inside the
area after he had beaten the goalkeeper to a loose ball.
Half-Time Score: 1-0 To Slough
The Metropolitan Police took control of the second-half and
didn't let Slough have much possession.
The Police equalised when one of their forwards ran through the
Slough defence and hit a low shot that crept in past Alan Foster
And they could have taken the lead when a free header hit the far
post and rebounded to safety.
But the Rebels didn't give up, they kept at it and with about 10
minutes left they got their reward.
Substitute Danny Steer
(pictured left) ran through the Police's defence but he
got clipped on the boot from behind and was given a penalty. Tony
Boot stepped up and hit the spot kick to the 'keeper's left.
This lifted the Rebels and spurred them onto a third goal when
Tony Boot superbly lobbed the goalkeeper from outside the area to
seal the three points and his hatrick.
